WPC: Ephemeral

He was a kid on the diamond
Running , jubilant as can be
Celebrating for this brief moment
And now lives on as a memory

Colton Aukerman, 1996 – 2013

I chose this photo of a kid from my high school who died in a car crash in 2013, three years after I graduated. For this brief, ephemeral moment, he may have been celebrating hitting a home run, maybe winning the game for his team. For a short moment, Colton had something to feel proud about, for the next time at the plate he may have struck out. He was just a care free, happy go lucky kid not knowing what the future had in store, just living for this happy moment before it was over.
